In his testimony, Bishop Bennison defends his conduct

The day before the trial began Michael Rehill, Chancellor the Diocese of Pennsylvania issued this statement:

"The statement made by Bishop Bennison’s attorney, James Pabarue, is totally false. The Standing Committee of the Diocese of Pennsylvania had nothing to do with the charges or the investigation that led to the Presentment now pending against Bishop Bennison. This case is in no way motivated by the belief shared by all of the members of the Standing Committee that Bishop Bennison should resign, but rather is the product of an independent investigation conducted in accordance with the canons of the Episcopal Church."
